This little robot is the Sphero: SPRK Edition, designed to innovate and inspire the next generation to learn programming.
While sitting at a computer with code all day might be someone’s idea of fun, the Sphero is a more approachable and realistic form of learning.
The SPRK app is designed for everyone, whether you’re a young newbie or a seasoned programmer. The droid can be controlled through a smartphone or tablet and can learn simple commands: to roll, flip, spin, and change color.
The code viewer is text-based, meaning you can see the code and combine commands. The c-style language is visually pleasing, and a great first step into learning. Who knows, maybe there’s some Python or C++ in your future?
